also came in very weak today. if you looked at durables, even if you stripped out defense and transportation, it was still a very weak number. that was the third down month in a row we had seen on that. that's not a good sign. >> so are things worsening? >> in my view, they are. the employment situation is as bad as it was in 2009. i like the employment to population ratio. that has only moved one-tenth of a percent higher since its worst print in 2009. >> yet, you don't want to get in front of this train that is the stock market with the central bank easing. >> i would disagree with that. don't fight the fed. you should be fighting the fed at this point. i look at double-digit returns. you don't get double-digit returns every day when you have these kinds of structural head winds ahead of you. we've been very actively doing what we can control, which is trimming portfolios into these rallies, taking risk off the table all year long. so when you say don't fight the fed, that's really a short-term phenomenon. >> really? >> to me it's a great opportunity. >> i don't know if ben

defense and non-defense. you have a mature technology and you say they deserve a million dollars, that is not the role of government in my view providing tax breaks and incentives but to give them money, that is not the right answer. liz: the administration on both sides of the aisle have gone heavy into every mature industry year after year after year. at some point should we be in an effort to bring down the national debt looking at those? >> of it were up to me, i would get rid of them tomorrow. the one i disliked the most was ethanol. so yes, i think the oil industry, gasoline industry is doing pretty well. so i wouldn't subsidize it. liz: at all? >> no, of course not. why should we? are they hurting? liz: not at all. >> overtime if they do it right it can make energy oil independent. liz: an annual low rate from the previous 1.7%. from your perspective, what do we need to do to figure out this problem of growth? >> first of all, why is it they always have to revise lower? we need to, in my view, the burden the small and large businesses from the uncertainty they have right now. on

.'s numbers are how well it's doing at playing defense. we know that part of their strategy is discounting their products, hoping they can create somewhat of a moat around them and give them time to get blackberry 10 out. seems that defensive strategy is working better than a lot of people expected. their average selling price is not down as much as people expected. a number of analysts expected them to do worse than that $2.5 billion number. they got up to 2.9. what we're seeing here is the the defensive strategy. it remains to be seen now that the iphone 5 is out and the samsung galaxy iii is out in the channel. >> all right, john. thank you so much. stock up big, 14% higher on r.i.m. up next, europe is a mess. the u.s. and china are slowing down. where is global growth coming from? bob hormats is with me. >>> then, it seems like a number of americans are learning a bad habit from washington. we'll tell you which one next. e, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks gr

to make three points. first of all, defense will and can make a contribution to deficit reduction. secondly, this is not the way. the sequester is the worst way to go about reducing defense spending. thirdly, the right way to do it is to go after taxes, raise tax revenue and cut the entitlement programs, which are driving long-term spending growth and debt creation in this country. it's not defense, which is on a relatively stable downward path. so, you know, i would agree that we need to cut our deficits. it's just the wrong way to do it. >> so what is the better way to do it? here we have, you know, automatic cuts coming, automatic tax increases coming. a lot of people predicting that 2013 will be a recession as a result of this. we haven't even heard from the defense companies in terms of how many jobs they're about to cut because of it. so what's the best way to do it? >> keep in mind nobody wants the sequester to happen. maybe chris and his colleagues at catos are an exception. the idea of a sequester is so awf awful, it would cut so deeply into spending, it should never happ

for having me. >> so for so long all we talk about is the low-hanging fruit that is defense cuts as well as the entitlements. medicare, medicaid, and social security. where do you see opportunity for cuts? >> we see opportunity across the budget. in agriculture, in transportation. as you say, in defense and in general government programs but across the government we think there's opportunities. probably if you look at crop insurance or commodity payments in the agriculture, that can add up. smaller areas that's $1 billion. $1 billion here, $1 billion there, it adds up to money. we wanted a menu of thoughtful choices to reduce our deficit and avoid sequestration. >> go through it for us. because, you know, i guess if it were that easy, it would have been a lot simpler getting to the point where we're at. can you talk to us specifics about what you think should be cut? >> sure. that's what we wanted to do in this report. it's more than $100 billion in agriculture, more than $100 billion in energy, and as i said, in agriculture, commodity crop payments, reforming crop insurance. in ene
